    I have hatched a recessive white French black copper maran tonight! The line is wade jean and bev Davis line. I couldn't be more excited to use this young baby as a breeder to improve genes in my flock! I hope you all have had such a wonderful weekend and first of the week!

    He's a bit young yet to be evaluating as a breeder. Who knows what other recessive traits will rear their ugly head. Keep an eye on toes, comb and body type. These are the main stay of the breed. Color is nice but not necessarily and improvement to a line.
